Cardiff set to appoint Solskjær as new manager

Cardiff look set to confirm former Man United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjær as their new manager, according to BBC Sport.

The Norwegian has enjoyed an impressive start to his management career with former club Molde, and looks set to replace Malky Mackay, who was sacked on Friday, at the Bluebirds.


Solskjær, who earned the nickname of the “baby-faced assassin” after proving a lethal prowess in front of goal during his playing days, flew in to London for final talks with club owner Vincent Tan, and discussions were believed to be a formality and should be concluded in time to see the 40-year-old attend the club’s New Year’s Day trip to Arsenal.


It is believed that Solskjær will have considerable transfer funds made available to him to spend in the winter transfer window, and should be ready to take full control before Cardiff travel to Newcastle for their FA Cup Third Round clash on Saturday.


Solskjær first arrived in the Premier League as a player with Man United in 1996, and scored on his debut as a substitute at home to Blackburn Rovers. He played for the club until retiring through injury in 2007.


Cardiff find themselves two points ahead of the relegation zone going into the New Year’s Day fixtures, and so Solskjær may find himself having to prove his abilities quickly if he is to help Cardiff avoid a bitter relegation scrap.
